Detailed reviews of high-resolution acoustic studies in the continental slope of the Gulf of Cadiz has revealed the following gas-related features: acoustic turbidity and blanking, bright spots, ancient and modern pockmarks, high-amplitude diffractions, acoustic plumes and turbidity in the water column, and BSRs. The origin of the gas is believed to be biogenic and thermogenic. The BSR-like acoustic anomalies occur intermittently in some areas of the upper slope and tend to occur in the… CONTINUE READING
